Thanks to a program instituted by President Donald Trump, there seems to be a source of weapons for teachers who want and are allowed to follow President Donald Trump’s advice.
Implementation of allowing willing and trained teachers and other school personnel to carry handguns would convert protection-free (aka “Gun Free Zones’) in to places where potential shooters could not be sure they, themselves, would not be shot.
A Friend of McHenry County Blog writes,
There are 100,000 M1911 hand guns in DoD warehouses deemed “excess inventory” that Trump just ordered to be sold to civilians.
They are limiting the sale to 10,000 per year but thats just for the CMP (civilian marksmanship program) sale.
Teachers can be issued these classic hand guns at no cost to taxpayers.
These guns were cleared for sale each year under Obama but the annual NDAA (National Defense Authorization Act) language was “may sell” and of course Obama, given a choice said no to the sale of excess hand gun inventory.
Congress changed that language in this year’s NDAA to “shall sell” and Trump signed it into law a few weeks ago.
So… there are 100,000 M1911 45 cal hand guns ready to arm teachers at no cost to taxpayers!!!
